San Antonio’s Rebecca Creek Distillery, one of the largest craft distilleries in North America, has opened the Rebecca Creek Saloon inside Texas Rangers’ Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas. The two-level, 4,000-square-foot Rebecca Creek Saloon holds up to 300 people, features a menu exclusively available in the Saloon, and provides prime viewing of the ballpark.
“The Texas Rangers team has a tradition of excellence, so it really is a perfect fit,” said Steve Ison, CEO of Rebecca Creek Distillery. “We are eager for the Saloon to be a part of the ballpark’s exhilarating atmosphere, and to offer Rangers fans some tasty eats and refreshing cocktails. It’s all about enhancing the game day experience for the fans.”
Dishes exclusively available in the Saloon include a veggie wrap, a half-rack of pork ribs, as well as The N.E.Q (“Never Ever Quit”), which is shaved rib eye steak, mozzarella sticks, fried jalapenos, waffle fries, onion rings, and white queso, and The Farm sandwich, which is stuffed with chicken, beef and pork. Handcrafted cocktails created with Rebecca Creek Distillery’s award-winning spirits, including Texas Ranger Whiskey, Rebecca Creek Whiskey and Enchanted Rock Vodka, are also available.
Founded in 2009 by Steve Ison, Rebecca Creek Distillery was the first legal distillery in South Texas since Prohibition. It has since grown to become one of the largest craft distilleries in North America with nearly 85,000 cases sold annually. Its product lineup includes Rebecca Creek Whiskey, Texas Ranger Whiskey, Enchanted Rock Vodka, and Enchanted Rock Peach Vodka.
The Distillery offers free tours on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, and its tasting room and gift shop are open-to-the-public for group tastings and private events for up to 500 people.
